News Desk: The High Court on Thursday granted permanent bail to Regent Hospital Chair Mohammad Shahed in a graft case filed over misappropriating around Tk 2.75 crore from the Padma Bank (formerly Farmers Bank).
The bench of Justice SM Kuddus Zaman and Justice KM Zahid Sarwar passed the order.
Lawyer Khurshid Alam Khan represented the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) while lawyer Masudul Haque stood for Shahed.
In 2020, ACC Deputy Director Md Shahjahan Miraj filed the case against four people, including Shahed.
The ACC will appeal before the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court challenging the High Court order, Khurshid said.
Also, Shahed, who was arrested in several other criminal cases, cannot be released from jail, he added.
